The Miami Beach mansion where the mob boss Al Capone planned the Valentine’s Day bloodbath of rival gang members and where he died officially belongs to someone else!
The first time the estate went on the market since its restoration was in 2018, bringing most of the home’s historical designs and décor back to life.
The estate of the legendary prohibition-era gangster was meticulously restored to a lot of its unique splendor following an intensive restoration in 2015 by Miami-based wealth and investment management company MB America.
The notorious gangster bought the sunshine getaway in 1928 following his stint at Alcatraz.
Realtor Nelson Gonzalez stated: “The illustrious historical past and prime location of this residence can’t be overstated.
“This is one of the most significant estates in South Florida, now on the market for the first time since its restoration.
“The attention to detail by MB America has preserved the home’s unique 1920’s attributes, yet its slew of modern conveniences and top-of-the-line amenities make it a lucrative draw for well-heeled buyers.”
Al Capone reportedly went as far as to spend $200,000 at the time to put in a gatehouse, seven-foot-high wall, searchlights, a cabana, and coral rock grotto.
The house remained in his family till 1952, when it was sold by his wife, Mae Capone.
Today, the property, dotted with century-old trees, is anchored by a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath main villa.
A pool sits adjacent to a stately two-story cabana, which contains a water-facing terrace and a half-bath on the first level, and one bedroom and a full bath with a glittering tile mosaic on the second.
The unique gatehouse, positioned on the property entrance, has been transformed right into a two-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse.
Some of the main villa’s unique features embrace the black-and-gold Art Deco powder room, 1920’s ceiling lights, the fireside in the lounge, and the porch.
